drank Jasmine Silver Needle by Adagio Teas
176 tasting notes

When I received my order from Adagio, I noticed that my sample tin of Jasmine Silver Needle seemed to be slightly deformed. This resulted in the lid being extremely difficult to remove. I was so excited to open the tin that I didn’t take the time to think things through, and realize that opening a tin of tea over a long shag carpet probably wasn’t the best idea. So finally the lid flew off, and the most expensive tea I have ordered to date went FLYING. It all landed in the shag carpet. What a nightmare. It took me forever to pick it all out, and my first sample cup most likely was an infusion of Jasmine Silver Needle and Carpet Fibers. Tasty.
Despite this nightmare, however, the tea really did taste wonderful. It was so light and flowery, and the smell was AMAZING as well. I have around $15 in frequent cup points built up, so guess what tea I’m going to spend them on?!

How annoying for you! At least it was a large leaf one so you could save it, and that it was worth the effort. :)

Erin

Yes! And as an added bonus, my carpet now smells like Jasmine. How delicious!

Angrboda

Hee! Nothing is so bad it’s not good for something. :D

Ricky

As I was reading your review, I could picture the entire scenario in my head. I’m so sorry that happened, but it does make a great tasting note. ;)
